Editorial Reviews

Review

"Murphy makes a compelling argument that television provides key precedents and frameworks for understanding contemporary digital media. With sophisticated analysis grounded in accessible and engaging prose, this book fills a unique gap in the body of media scholarship."
(Jason Mittell author of Television & American Culture 2010-08-13)

"An ambitious book that defines television not simply as a device or a means of production but instead as an environment. Murphy successfully and effectively elaborates on this idea by introducing numerous concrete examples such as portable music players, various game consoles, and remote controllers. This is an accessible, jargon-free resource. Recommended."
(Choice 2011-09-01)

From the Inside Flap

How Television Invented New Media adjusts the picture of television culturally while providing a corrective history of new media studies itself. Personal computers, video game systems, even iPods and the Internet built upon and borrowed from television to become viable forms. Sheila C. Murphy analyzes how specific technologies emerge and how representations, from South Park to Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along-Blog, mine the history of television just as they converge with new methods of the making and circulation of images.
